Oak Jersey business team settle the score for a brilliant cause
In the last five years, the Prosperity Day virtual cycling race has enabled businesses to have fun on bikes, venting their corporate fury safely and settling scores in public but more importantly, it has helped raised almost £95,000 for local charities.
On Friday 4th September in St. Helier, Jersey business teams had the opportunity to compete and have fun whilst venting their corporate fury by settling a score in public, in safety and all for a brilliant cause – Prosperity Day.
The event raised £12,470 for two local charities hard hit by COVID-19, Philip's Footprints and the JSPCA. 12 teams went head-to-head on a simulated stage of the Tour de France on state-of-the-art turbo trainers.
Jean-Luc Piazza, Jo Gorrod and Zach O'Shea made up Team Oak. The trio managed to raise an impressive £912 through sponsorship, a pub quiz with colleagues in the Jersey office, football cards and a bonus ball! Many thanks to all who helped to make the event a success, those who sponsored colleagues and most importantly to the riders who gave their all on the day.
